Columbia police investigate burglaries


The Columbia Borough Police Department has responded to
numerous residential home burglaries throughout the Borough. The burglaries appear
to be crimes of opportunity, with the perpetrators entering the homes through unlocked
doors and windows. In the majority of these instances, the the burglaries occurred
in the early evening hours when the occupants were home. Typical items taken to
date are women's purses, cash, firearms, loose change, and other small items such
as digital cameras and GPS devices. These are not isolated incidents, nor are they
occurring in any one specific geographical area. Presently there have been burglaries

in the 600 block of Plane St., South 9th St., 900 Block of Plane St., 100 block. of Chestnut
St., the 1st block of North 4th St., and the 100 block of South 6th St.
The suspects are
very brazen in their actions, and are to be considered armed and dangerous. Under
no circumstances should a resident confront these individuals, please retreat to
safety and call the police immediately As previously mentioned, these are crimes of
opportunity. Keep your doors and windows locked when you are home, and when
you are away. Also do not leave valuables laying around in plain view. Put purses
and valuables away that can be observed through windows and doors.
 We urge any
members of the public having information regarding these burglaries to contact Det.
Matthew Leddy or Sergeant Adam Miller with the Columbia Borough Police Department
at 717-684-7735.

Imaging Center opens


An 18-month project to renovate a prominent historical downtown Columbia building has culminated with the Nov. 1 opening of the new Imaging Center of Columbia. Located in the former M&T Bank building, 369 Locust St., the property was purchased in May 2011 by Cimarron Investments, LLC, a real-estate investment group owned by Don and Becky Murphy of Columbia. The couple had a vision of bringing business and quality luxury living to the downtown Columbia area through the redevelopment of the building, which was originally built in 1924.
The Imaging Center of Columbia is a division of Lancaster Regional Medical Center and the Heart of Lancaster Regional Medical Center. The 4,000-square-foot facility is the two hospitals’ sixth imaging location. The new convenient Columbia location will offer high-quality X-ray, ultrasound, digital mammography, DEXA bone density, and lab collection services. Since undergoing diagnostic tests can be stressful, the center was designed to make patients feel at ease the moment they enter. With a soothing d├ęcor and warm colors, it does not look like a hospital or medical office.
Hours of operation are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays, 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays, and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. Appointments are not required for general X-ray services, and convenient off-street parking is provided at no charge. Readers are invited to meet the staff at the center’s ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house on Tuesday, Nov. 20, beginning at noon. For additional information or to schedule an appointment, people may call 684-0259.
Locust Point Apartments, located above the Imaging Center, have been transformed into two floors of eight beautiful luxury living spaces. Six of these are three-bedroom units, and two are two-bedroom units. All contain a living room, dining room, full kitchen, laundry room, full bathroom, and plenty of storage space. Amenities include new cherry kitchen cabinets, a front-loading washer and dryer, a built-in microwave, a dishwasher, a glass-top stove, and a large refrigerator. The building’s original hardwood floors have been refinished, as have been the original American chestnut raised-panel interior doors. Bath and laundry rooms have porcelain tile, and all countertops are granite. Along with new tilt-in vinyl windows, each unit is fitted out with high attractive tray ceilings and crown molding throughout. Also included are high-efficiency heat pumps with central air-conditioning.
Renovations are wrapping up, and Cimarron is now showing units and taking reservations, as residents may begin moving in on Saturday, Dec. 1. Free off-street parking is included, and construction is now starting on a new elevator to provide quick, easy access to the second and third floors. With its close proximity to the Susquehanna River, this premier property aims to be an ideal location for residents to rediscover all the ways they can live, work, and play in the downtown. The property is attracting professionals, couples, and senior residents who want to get away from property-ownership expenses.
For rental information on Locust Point, readers may contact Don Murphy at 278-7979. In conjunction with the Imaging Center of Columbia's Open House, Locust Point Apartments will also be open for tours on Nov. 20 from noon to 3 p.m.
